1  Rodeo Girl Makeup bag! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by laragazza on: August 15, 2007 10:02:20 AM
I was feeling a little "yee-ha!" so when I needed a little bag for all my various things I carry with me daily (to keep me looking pretty!) in my purse, I decided to cowgirl it up a bit

Just a simple calico bag with a horseshoe applique on it.

here's the detail of the horseshoe!  The photo is fuzzy!  Pretend it was supposed to look like that!

2  What every lady sailor needs! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by laragazza on: June 05, 2006 12:50:33 PM
Thanks to a sizeable about of striped fabric I found at the local thrift store, I can create everything a lady sailor would need when she's taking a night on the town:

The pouch (for gold dubloons and tampons):



zipper detail

The clutch (for your ships keys and condoms in case you meet sexy pirates):




The skirt (because going out nude isn't very sailorly):

(the skirt is a wrap skirt in about a size 12 american.  I am totally partially nude in that photo.  I bet you wish you could see my amazing sailor cans.)

3  saucy cap for the lady taxi drivers in all of us in Crochet: Completed Projects by laragazza on: January 16, 2006 06:06:05 AM
I really wanted one of those adorable knit caps I've seen everywhere, but have been too lazy to figure out the knit pattern, so i made a quicker one out of crochet instead!

(please excuse the un-showered-ness of this picture)

I have enough yarn left over, so I made a mini scarf to go with it:

4  tiny pie! in Recipes and Cooking Tips by laragazza on: January 11, 2006 06:12:13 AM
I made a bunch of tiny apple pies from an idea I saw on notmartha.com

I think they're ultra adorable, and are perfect to bring to work!  The filling is apples, cinnamon, nutmeg, and a little cardamom for spice.

5  punk rock = old lady shrugs in Knitting: Completed Projects by laragazza on: January 11, 2006 06:07:06 AM
At least, that's what I keep telling myself everytime I make one of them.

Here's the front, and that's me looking saucy!  Or cheesy?  Cheesy Saucy?  Sounds like lunch...

...and the back to show off the peppermint stripe pattern I worked in on this.

6  tattoo wall decoration in Interior Decorating: Completed Projects by laragazza on: December 18, 2005 03:44:02 PM

bitchin' wall tattoo!

i just bought some dollar store contact paper and decided to see if it would actually stick to me wall.  it does!  and it looks really cute!  the future plans for this is a pirate ship, which will take a lot of contact paper, but honestly, a dollar?  how can you complain?

7  look! billy idol loves stenciling! in Stenciling: Discussion and Questions by laragazza on: April 11, 2005 10:45:00 AM
i went to the billy idol concert (i know, i know, you're jealous.  it's ok) and his stage setup has a HUGE black and white pattern of his face! the first thing i thought when i saw it was, "dude, that would make a sweet stencil for a shirt"

maybe this means that i spend too much time on the craftster forum? 

look!  it's true!  it would make an awesome stencil.

ok, and just in case you were wondering, yes, he still does look hot.

8  spring time is for whales in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by laragazza on: March 21, 2005 05:01:53 PM

a classic jordy bag with wooden handles bought at jo-ann fabrics.  i might add an eye to my whale, seeing as he is blind.  and blind whales could hit like....swimming kids?  maybe?  i don't know.

9  two cute but nutty cards in Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General by laragazza on: March 21, 2005 04:58:11 PM

for a pen pal who likes owls

for a guy who...um...likes...ok, he might not like crazy rabbits, but i don't know what else to say about this.

both cards are made by sewing on a little cartoon onto a pre-bought card. i thought it was a cute idea.

10  is....is that a hickey? in Crochet: Completed Projects by laragazza on: February 07, 2005 08:17:53 AM
i've got a strange collar addiction, so i crocheted up this little number whenever i need a quick fix of sweet peter-pan collar action.
however, wearing said collar has everyone in my studio buzzing around trying to figure out if i'm hiding a little sucky sucky action from last night.  sadly, i am not white-trash enough to have a hickey. but at least i've got a styling new accessory. 

my neck's red due to reaction to a wool thrift store scarf (wash stuff before you wear it, lesson learned).
but what ever, at least i plucked that single gross hair on my chin for you guys.
(listen, armenian people are hairy.  that's why i have a chin hair.  just ask any other armenian.  they have chin hairs.  don't hate.)
